Need a good intro to Web Programming

I've mostly been a C/C++/C# back-end guy with little web development experience. But in my spare time i am thinking about doing some web programming as well.
Towards that end can someone point me to a good book (free, of course) or good articles to start learning about things like response object, request object etc? Pls note I am not asking pointers to learning C# or Java. I am interested in learning language neutral objects, specifically geared towards interoperability.
TIA.

Re: Need a good intro to Web Programming

if you're planning on writing code at some point, why not pick a language? if you want to go beyond the basics and start server-side programming, you will most prolly need to learn technology-specific concepts (.Net, Java, Ruby etc) and most resources you'd find will be targeted at a specific platform.

I'd just pick a platform and start working on a small project and learn things on the go

Re: Need a good intro to Web Programming

Ravi,
Best way to learn about web programming is reading RFC's for each of this stuff...
I suffer the pain when I hear JAva web programing and other crap too....trust me whenever I am assigned interviews..I am like..send me to hell mate...

HTTP RFC is the best way to start..use to be around 80 pages of so...1.1 is the main one...

You will understand more about all the things you are alking about request object, response object, request strings, variables..how to process, where is what data kinda stuff which you need to understand...

What I can guess is coming from server side background and maybe data center ( few years),, you want to first get good handles about what can browser do...how communication happens..what are capabilities avaliable on client/server side etc etc..RFC is good for that..

After that you can look at Firefox documents to understand client side programming bit more

I am out of touch these days so excuse me for not posting appropriate links
